Wednesday Farmers Market moves indoors starting Oct. 6

Kathleen Dickson, market manager for the Wednesday Farmers Market at the Chetco Grange Community Center, announced that the market will be moving indoors, Wednesday, Oct. 6.

Every Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., shoppers will continue to find fresh produce from local farms, homemade, special bakery goodies, jams and jellies, and hot ready-to-eat specialties, plus arts and crafts from local artisans.

Dickson said, “In addition to local farmers and food artisans, we will have a few local crafters and artists, including Vi and Len Burton and jewelry artist Jean Johnston.”

She noted, “The market will flow well from outdoor to indoor, and this should help customers who enjoy shopping the market weekly.”

In addition to the Burtons and Johnston, others currently on the list of those ready to market their food and art at the indoor farmers’ market are Ocean Air Farms, Riyes Cottage Garden, Flora Pacifica, Fernwood Woolworks, Robin Hauser, Cathey’s Cookies, Cakes & Candies, chef Paul Grossi, and Village Baker, with more expected to join.

Specialties to be offered include, in addition to lots of fresh produce, the goat cheese, quiche and wild mushrooms from Robin Hauser’s local farm and hot biscuits and gravy and hearty soup served on the premises by chef Grossi, a master, professionally trained culinary artist.

Dickson emphasized that on Wednesdays the indoor winter market will be a great place to find an exciting array of comfort foods and creative gifts for the holidays.

The Grange Hall is located at 97895 Shopping Center Ave., Harbor.

  • Relief over Scotland gives way to 'Great Stagnation' worries
    Scotland's rejection of independence and a lack of any fireworks at a Fed meeting last week have calmed investors enough to shift the focus back to what some call the "Great Stagnation", and how to avoid it. The Group of 20 leading nations, meeting at the weekend, said they were tantalizingly close to adding an extra $2 trillion to the global economy and creating millions of new jobs. Brazil is expected to revise down its growth rate just three weeks before a presidential election, Russia is mired in economic sanctions over Ukraine, and China's weak data is partly responsible for the 15 percent fall in the price of Brent crude since early July. A common G20 concern is the risk of Europe's malaise pulling others down.
  • G20 says nearing growth goal, but more needed from Europe
    The Group of 20 leading nations say they are tantalisingly close to adding an extra $2 trillion to the global economy and creating millions of new jobs, but Europe's extended stagnation remains a major stumbling block. The finance ministers and central bank chiefs gathered in the Australian city of Cairns claimed progress on fireproofing the world's financial system and on closing tax loopholes exploited by giant multinationals. They also dealt with the thorny problem of whether to invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to the G20 leaders' summit in November given events in Ukraine, with the consensus being to maintain diplomatic pressure but leave the door open for his attendance. "We are determined to lift growth, and countries are willing to use all our macroeconomic levers – monetary, fiscal and structural policies – to meet this challenge," said Australian Treasurer Joe Hockey, who hosted the event.
  • SoftBank estimates $4.6 billion gain from Alibaba listing
    Japan's SoftBank Corp said it expected a gain of about 500 billion yen ($4.6 billion) from Alibaba Group Holding's share listing in New York, where the Chinese e-commerce leader surged 38 percent on its first day of trade. SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son also told CNBC that he would want to own more of Alibaba, although he reiterated that the Japanese mobile carrier and Internet media company was happy with the current 32 percent stake, which made it the Chinese company's biggest shareholder. Asked if he would like more of Alibaba, Son told CNBC on Friday: "Of course." He said SoftBank considered Alibaba a core holding and he was upbeat about the Chinese company's future.
